I hope you’re having a wonderful day.
This is just a test post to see if automated builds are working, but I might as well make it a positive affirmation.
If I can keep up with it, I plan on having a post every day in April, following Caudle’s Apto April prompts. Although, I won’t be writing them every day, as you’ve probably guessed that this post exists because I wanted to find a way to write a bunch of things all at once and have stuff show up once a day.

Game Log 2/17: Wordle 243 X/6*
A lot has happened in the past week and a half for me. In brief: there was a shooting on my university campus that left one student in my graduating class dead, my right knee unexpectedly sprained and dislocated, and I’m now being evicted and have to move out by the end of March. That last part has some very big implications for this blog, and I’ll mainly focus on that.
The age-old debate: one space after each sentence, or two spaces after each sentence. It’s a whitespace debate older than the most furious tabs versus spaces debacle. Which is right, which is wrong? Sure, you could explain this through a simple difference of opinion, or perhaps a generational divide, but the issue is a bit more nuanced than that. The quick answer is: follow whatever style manual you’re given. However, if you’re like me, you’re your own boss when it comes to formatting you’re writing in certain situations (like here).
My struggles with ADHD have lead me to seek out and try many, many different techniques to try and be more productive. No one technique really worked. Sure, they would help for a time, but then I’d slip up once and fall into a period of complete executive dysfunction again. Turns out, the thing that helped the most (besides getting medication obviously) was simply not making myself feel guilty for not finishing all the tasks I had set out for the day.
After getting a ton of gift cards for Christmas, I bought an Apple Watch SE since it was on sale. I’ve only had it on for a few days and I’m already enjoying it, although I’m struggling to feel like I’m utilizing it to its fullest potential. I thought I’d post about my feelings using it so far.
This isn’t my first smartwatch, I originally wore a Pebble 2 for a year or two before it physically fell apart (well after the company went defunct).
I want to read more It’s one of those things where I enjoy it, but can’t get started often (thanks ADHD). I go in spells of reading all the time, then not reading at all for several months, then getting back into it. I also have a habit of getting a library card, using it once, returning the book, losing the card, and forgetting about it. Times have changed with that at least.
For those who haven’t seen my Gopher posts before (RIP), I used to do a “Random Thoughts” post when I didn’t have any ideas. It’s usually a paragraph or two on a random thing on my mind, with no rhyme or reason to the post as a whole. Here I am, out of ideas again, and I really just want to put stuff down, so why not bring that back.
I haven’t posted much recently, so I thought I’d make a status update of sorts. I’ve been so focused on coursework, getting addicted to Destiny 2, and migrating to Windows 11 as a daily driver (I know, the heresy) that I forgot I even hosted things at home.
Administrative Stuff Since I last posted, I temporarily removed the public repository from tildegit. While it’s a good place, they have rules about sensitive content, and since I wrote that one definitely kink story before, I took it down to comply with those rules preemptively.
Content warnings: although not explicitly sex related, alludes to kinks including but not limited to: transformation, inflation/inflatables, pregnancy. The story is directed as if it’s a conversation to the reader. This is a very esoteric idea I just couldn’t get out of my mind. Reader’s discretion is advised.
It was an unforgettable day, no matter how routine it started. Getting out of bed, taking a shower, making sure I’m all polished up and ready for the day.
